Inetpub Logs Getting Very Large?

What are Inetpub log files? These are log files created by IIS, they are mostly used for trouble shooting and reviewing security configurations thus these logs are not critical and can be deleted unless you need them for these purposes.

You can also disable the logs if you want - IIS logging is is enabled by default in IIS6 and IIS7.5 Assuming that it's one of those, please see the below link:

If you don't use IIS for any specific reason then the best would be to just uninstall IIS.

I hope you found this helpful :)
